‘Eternals’ Casting Rumor Confirmed After Last Night’s Hollywood Premiere

Rumors come and go in this business, especially when it comes to Marvel movies. Chloe Zhao’s Eternals hasn’t been free from this, either, and following last night’s red carpet premiere in Hollywood, folks in attendance are blabbing spoilers everywhere. One of them has to do with a long-rumored bit of casting that can now be confirmed.

If it hasn’t already been spoiled for you, now’s your chance to back out!

As we know from Zhao herself, Eternals has a pair of post-credits scenes. One of them is apparently buzzier than the other, as it confirms Harry Styles as the Eternal known as Eros aka Starfox. Why is this a big deal? Because Eros is the brother of Thanos, and could be a major player in the MCU going forward. I mean, you don’t cast Styles at all if the character is only showing up once. He has the power to control a person’s emotions, which he has used in the past as both a hero and an antihero…er, he also stood trial accused of using his powers to force women to have sex with him. Yeah, that was a touchy storyline you can bet Marvel won’t touch now.

Eternals opens on November 5th.
